OK, I am getting really frustrated. I have been converting all of my mp3s from 128kps to 192kps using switch, and then replacing my original mp3s with the new ones. The problem is that when my ipod plays the new higher bitrate mp3s, it gets about 2/3 of the way through the song and then skips to about the last 3 seconds of the song and freezes. I play the songs on itunes without any problems. I have restored my ipod and still have no luck. The only thing that has worked was when I deleted a song and re-added it to my library. I do not want to do this, though because I don't want to lose my playcounts and ratings. Can anyone help me?
